Pyro Pastrami at Delirama Makes a Mean Pastrami Sandwich

It’s hard to find good pastrami in the Bay Area. Walk around New York or Los Angeles, and you’ll bump into tons of great delis. Here by the Bay, though, they’re few and far between. There’s Wise Sons, a handful of other places, and not much else.

That’s why Pyro’s Pastrami, which began as a popup, is such a welcome addition to the area.

The great news for pastrami lovers is that Pyro’s now has a permanent location on Solano Avenue in Berkeley, in the newly opened Delirama deli. If you’re looking for a tasty takeout item, their pastrami sandwiches and rubens are for you.

I stopped by Demirama to check their sandwiches out.

This sandwich is no joke – in fact, this photo is only half of it! Literally–that hulking hunk of meat and bread is actually a half sandwich. You can expect a giant sandwich full of delicious pastrami that Pyro’s make themselves, as well as a variety of other tasty additions.

So, if you’re looking for an incredible sandwich, head on over to Pyro’s on Solano Avenue in Berkeley. You won’t be disappointed!
